Top 10 Bank Stocks To Watch For 2018

It’s been a rough year or so for gun makers. Absent the fear among gun owners that the federal government will in some way restrict gun purchases and ownership, gun sales have tanked.

In an exclusive report, Reuters cites people familiar with the matter who say that iconic gun maker Remington Arms is searching for financing to allow the firm to file for bankruptcy protection. Remington has been trying to restructure its $950 million debt load ahead of a $550 million term loan maturing next year.

The maturing loan is trading at about a 50% discount to full value and a $250 million loan is trading at around $0.16 on the dollar according to Reuters.

But the company’s debt load is just one part of Remington’s problem in rounding up financing. The other big issue is reputation risk.

The firearms maker is controlled by private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management and, cccording to Reuters, some of the firm’s investors refused to put more money into Remington following the school shooting in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, that left 20 children and 6 adults dead. A Remington Bushmaster rifle was used in the killings.
